Hello and welcome!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing two sweet and cute cards!
I just cannot put aside new fantastic goodies from the Newton’s Nook Designs January release without stretching them more and had a lot of fun playing again with two of my favorites! So let’s see what I came up with this time!
My first card features a super adorable and so incredibly cute Deer Friend stamp set. I really felt in loooove with the sweet fawns and so I grabbed the coordinating Deer Friend Die Set and die cut a bunch of elements from a watercolor paper, aligned them into my stamping positioning tool for a quick and easy stamping. Then I just enjoyed making a super simple watercoloring both on the stamps and the background with regular watercolors I have in my stash.
Once all the elements were dried, I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Deer Friend stamp set and assembled the card on a square 5″x5″ kraft base, adding some dimension with a foam tape.
My second card was colored with copic markers. That’s why I started it with Neenah Solar white paper and played with the super adorable couple of kitties from Newton’s Sweetheart stamp set. You know me: I just love to use stamps in a creative way. And since the kitties were reminding me my furry mischiefs, I decided to transform a love stamp into a thanks one and to make a personalized card to give to the girl who takes care of my kitties when I’m away from home! Once more I used the coordinating dies from Newton’s Sweetheart Die Set for a quick and easy die cutting. At this point I also prepared a few other die cut elements for the layout using Darling Hearts and Frame & Flags die sets and created my own tone on tone pattern through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Coloring the kitties with copic markers I decided to try a new to me and very fun technique that made the cats look as if they were stuffed animals. And finally added “Grazie” sentiment from Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set that came sooooo handy to me because grazie means thanks in Italian.
That’s all for today! Hope you like these sweet cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
